  • Hi! I found my local hospitals menopause clinic was very helpful. It depends if your local hospital has one. Also there's a site called MenopauseMatters, in the UK and there's one called Hystersisters in the US. I know there are questions and posts on that one, some of them may help you. The Ovacome website has a helpline number where ther is a nurse who may be able to help you! but it's more likely that the specific menopause sites will help you to find the info that will help you. Any load-bearing exercise ( like weight training, walking yoga or tai chi) will help to build up bone strength. I find a 'Ladycare' magnet (from Boots or Waitrose) helps me with hot flushes.

    The Penny Brohn website has all sorts of info about supporting yourself through and after a cancer diagnosis, so you may find some info on there too. I buy my supplements and vitamins from the Natures Best website and there is an email query line which is informative. They gave me good advice in the past.

    Good luck
